Sparked by the network of creative coders, designers, and artists our founders knew from around the world, CODAME was founded to passionately celebrate art and technology. The CODAME brand of immersive, engaging, and out of the ordinary experiences was coined at the inaugural CODAME ART+TECH Festival in 2010 on a foggy rooftop in downtown San Francisco. 

Since then we have built... 

100+ events and workshops both public and private
200+ projects performances, installations around the world
300+ artists featured at our events
100,000+ community of artists and technologists
